Bahia Mar Marina


Bahia Mar Marina, originally uploaded by jimfrazier.

It's 2 degrees, the wind is blowing, and there's all this white crap on the ground. I felt in need of a little global warming. Ahhhh.

I took this photo while on our break during a seminar. This view was right outside the door. And it was in Febuary - three years ago. sigh.

I needed a picture, for my seminar, of a street scene that looked older. So I cloned out a car and some other distractions.

Superior, Wisconsin Wooden Grain Elevator

An oldy, but goody.....

According to the tour, this is the last wooden grain elevator in the Duluth, Minnesota harbor - evidently the others, uh, burned down. Apparently wooden grain elevators and explosive grain dust are not a good combination.

This building is being reclaimed and the company is selling the wood for new construction. www.oldglobewood.com/

The View from Room 316, originally uploaded by jimfrazier.

I've been seeing some cool time exposures and have been meaning to try something. When I got to this hotel on Sunday night, I was looking out over this view and thought I'd try some long exposures. This was the best. Two minutes.

Like my hat? Butterfly not included.

This thug tried to attack me, but I was able to fend him off. Took some effort, though. Showed him what for.

It looks to me like a Paper Kite (Idea leuconoe), but I'm thrilled to be corrected.

And for you know-it-alls, I know that this happened because the bandanna is red. Also, because it was about 900% humidity in the museum, the bandanna was, shall we say, operating well as a do-rag. That thug was getting plenty to drink.

On the Movie Set


On the Movie Set, originally uploaded by jimfrazier.

We stopped in Bisbee on the way out of the region for one last time. They have some excellent espresso in this coffee shop near the post office. We found a movie being filmed along the main street. It didn't look like a very high budget operation. There were no artificial lights and the scene wasn't really correct. There were electric wires and streetlights overhead, a red-painted curb, and concrete streets and sidewalks. And a Styrofoam cup bounced across the scene while they were filming.

But I've cropped out the lights, made it monotone and avoided the trash.
